From Amazon.co.uk

A purely tasteless, moronic, guilty pleasure. Director Harold Ramis employs a mixture of Mad magazine National Lampoon maturity and Saturday Night Live sarcasm in this goofball golf comedy set on the grounds of a posh country club. Somewhere buried in the slapstick antics, drug references, Marx Brothers-like insults, and gratuitous sex scenes are the intertwined, forgettable subplots of a poor caddie (Michael O'Keefe) trying to earn enough cash to attend college, and golf-tournament and class battles between rich and even richer snobs. Mainly, Ramisjust lets his colourful group of eccentrics crash into each other, relying on several inspired performances to create several hilarious moments of sketch comedy. Most come from the trio of Bill Murray (playing a vile, obsessed groundskeeper engaged in a one-man war with a charismatic and very stuffed gopher), Rodney Dangerfield (basically recreating his crude stand-up routine), and Chevy Chase (who looks bemusedly stoned throughout). Quotable favourites include Murray's acted-out fantasy of winning the Masters, his tall tale about caddying for the Dalai Lama, an overreaching priest's rain-soaked golf game, Dangerfield's verbal assault on the club's uptight dining patrons, and Chase's lesson on the essence of golf ("Be the ball, Danny"). A perfect double feature with other comparably crass films such as National Lampoon's Vacation or Stripes. --Dave McCoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Harold Ramis is a GENIUS! 25 July 2000
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD yesterday, having enjoyed "Caddyshack II" and vaguely remembering bits of this one. I must admit - the film is absolutely hilarious! I can't really describe it's highlights through fear of spoiling it for everyone. Bill Murray is great as the dopey, Gopher-hunting Carl Spackler and Rodney Dangerfield's role as Al Czervik raises many laughs at the expense of Judge Smails (played by Ted Knight). Prude old ladies, hyperactive young caddies, pompous rich 'high-society' snobs, gophers... none of them are safe from Caddyshack's jokes. One brilliant film!
Only one moan - surely they could've at least fit one special feature onto the disc á la "Blazing Saddles"?

3.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure 8 July 2008
Format:DVD
I first saw this back in the early 80s and although it was indisputably crude and juvenile it appealed to my own crude, juvenile sense of humour. It sort of dropped off my radar for years until I got talking to a work mate about films we remembered from childhood and Caddyshack cropped up as a shared highlight. We then spent the next few weeks trying to drop in quotes from the movie into conversations and memos.

So it's difficult for me to be objective about this one. I can see that the jokes are mostly lame, the subplots are predictable and the acting rarely rises above the adequate. But I still can't help laughing like a drain whenever I watch it.

It's probably one for nostalgists who remember when we thought Chevy Chase was funny and when Bill Murray made comedies. I do understand how this film will leave a lot of people stone faced - so maybe it's a rent before you try. But, for the rest of us this is a guilty pleasure.

Bring on the dancing gopher

4.0 out of 5 stars Caddyshack is a scream! 1 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
I've seen this film and it's a very very funny film, Bill Murray is hilarious as the quirky, strange, flirty bloke whose main objective in the film is to trap the furry annoying gophers that live under the huge golf course. You'll have to watch the film to see if he succeeds...lol.
The Lion Bar scene in the pool will have you choking on your coffee and the overall theme of the film, although daft at times, is a right scream, so funny.
Without giving the story away, it's about golf, odd people and even odder furry critters that are planning to take over the place!
:D If you like a silly film with laughs aplenty and if you like Bill Murray (from Ghostbusters) then watch Caddyshack!
The music throughout the film is not bad either, you'll be tapping your toes before you know it.

By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
So now you've got that going for you, which is nice.

Inspired by Brian Doyle-Murray's experiences as a caddy in his youth, this wild, anarchic film is about more than just golf. Without a doubt, it's my favorite comedy, and might even be one of the greatest movies of all time. There is not a single scene without comedic chaos.

Director Harold Ramis is barely able to contain the insanity. There is honestly so much in Caddyshack, there's enough for ten movies, hardly surprising since the first draft of the screenplay was 199 pages long while the first cut of the film run for 310 minutes. I imagine that there's enough cut out to make whole new Caddyshack movies. There are about five different plots developing at once throughout the movie, the funniest of which is Carl Spackler's (having been licensed to kill by the 'Government of the United Nations') attempts to assassinate a rogue gopher tearing up the golf course.

Each and every actor battles with each other, and it's hard to nail down exactly who runs away with the movie, but if I absolutely HAD to choose, I'd say that Rodney Dangerfield's sleazy, slobbish, overly-friendly, and gratuitously tipping character is the most wonderful thing about it. He is the perfect foil for Judge Smails (an utterly perfectly-cast Ted Knight), a pompous, bad-tempered, self-important hypocrite who wants to reserve the pretentious Bushwood Country Club for snobs and gentlemen (despite being far from a gentleman himself).

If you like comedy quotes, Caddyshack is a goldmine. There are hundreds, literally hundreds, of lines worthy of repeating in real life. You could literally get by, from cradle to the grave, just quoting Caddyshack, and it would bring you nothing but pure happiness and good fortune.

The Blu Ray features a 1080p 1.78:1 picture that is a HUUUUGE step-up from the DVD, with DTS HD-MA sound, and loads of extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic film and Blu ray gives sooooo much more. 19 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I won't review the movie,, its a classic. Not belly laughs but subtle humour with Dangerfield romping away with the limelight and the thinking humour being left to Chase.
I still think the Bill Murray "cinderella story" scene is one of the funniest moments of that actor's career for reasons I can not really fathom. It just makes me laugh out loud every time.
The blu ray gives us back the true colours from the original print. The greens ( clearly vital ) are a bit age-faded from the master reel but still so much more life like that the DVD transfer. The extra colour depth gives a more three dimensional feel and is well worth the upgrade from DVD.... RECOMMENDED !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gunga Galunga - A big hitter the Lama! 2 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite comedies. It looks great on BD considering its low budget and age and if you're a fan of the film, the extras are worth owning. Be the ball Danny!
